My 5310 goes to the "System Settings"

On boot-up my Maestro 5310 goes to the "System Settings" screen and will not go back to the main screen. I tried holding the reset button and also the power button for a reset. I tried to update the firmware, but it will not accept it! Any HELP... Thanks

Not sure how you tried the rest, but try turning the 5310 on and then hold the power button for 15 seconds, then start it again... if that fails, turn it on and press and hold the reset for 15 seconds.

if it works, try and update it again!

if neither of those work, its possible the digitizer (touch part of the screen) is out on it.

if its under warranty, send it back. this is a know problem with this model but most times it will reset and work fine.

Hello There, I have a Magellan myself, besides me knowing some things or two about GPS'S

Give this a try, seems to work for me and others most the time.

Try this for me to see if this works: Let me know. It needs to be rebooted. Turn off, by holding off button down. Then once it is completely off, then turn it on, BUT when you go to turn it on, keep on button depressed, all the way until it turns on and then some for about 15 seconds, now you just rebooted system. Let me know, if does work, please click on the thumbs up to showed your a happy customer. Thanks Mike

I have had to reset my magellan maestro 5310, but now cannot get passed the system settings and system status pages. I think I have to download something to get it back up and running but not sure where to...

Hi tedmare1

you can download the 4.72 update for your 5310 HERE but follow the directions to the
letter or it will render it all the instructions aftrer downloading and before you
run the update.

make sure either the battery is fully charged, or you have it plugged in to the home charger
NOTE: the usb cord will not charge a magellan 5310, so you need to use the home charger or
fully charge it woth the car charger before starting...if the download is interupted for any reason,
the update will fail and the 5310 will not fully boot.

you might have to register your 5310 with the site before downloading (you used to ) but maybe not since they changed their site within the last few days.

let me know if you need more help or info

I want to change the battery in my Magellan Maestro 5310. Removed the four obvious screws but the unit will not come apart. Any tricks?

use your finger nail and press and slide it along the seem where the front and back meet..there are at least 2 snaps on each side of the gps...start opposite the power port side or you can break it off..let that side for last!

When the Maestro is on hold the on off switch for 15 seconds. This will reset the unit. Turn it back on and it should be ok. Worked for me so far.
